The Gately's {Family Portrait Photographer, Tacoma WA}

The absolutely CUTEST family ever.  Christina and Steve won our photography package, complete with hair and make up services from the talented Anna Groves and Kristal Locke, at the Christian Faith Schools auction. The last two years we have been in business we have donated a package and have sighed a huge breath of relief when we found that people actually bid on it and were excited.  This year was no different.  We love Christian Faith Schools and believe in the work they are doing there so its PURE JOY to be able to give to Christian education.

When Christina called to announce that she had won I was elated!  She has been wanting to book with us for some time and it made me excited to know that her money was going to a even greater cause.  We met at Ft. Steilacoom on a somewhat cloudy day, not to un-normal for Washington, and enjoyed a fun afternoon among their fields.  Half way through the session, we did a quick outfit change and lunch break and went into outfit two!

These sweet boys brought instant smiles to my face.  They were so fun and full of energy and love their parents so much.  I love shooting families because I love seeing that pure elation. It can't be faked or made up or posed, it just is.

After getting through the first set of "important" pictures the boys got a reward in the form of a sucker- after that it was a wrap.

Christina- thank you for making sure our package got bid on and purchased at the auction.  I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek!  I had so much fun with you and your sweet family!

Until next time,

XO
